Here’s What the Experts Are Saying
“Whichever company can take the lead in the marketing of customizable skin care products will develop an enormous commercial advantage,” says Guive Balooch, Global Vice President of L’Oréal’s Technology Incubator.
“Digital technology will make shopping more personal in 2018. With so many products on the shelves, time-pressed consumers are in need of a more intuitive shopping experience. New technology can interpret consumers’ facial expressions and eye movements to determine their product preferences and offer help, both in-store and online. In the coming years, commercial use of biometric data is set to extend beyond eye tracking, as heart rate, body language, and speech become increasingly important for a more complete assessment of consumer preference.”
“IMX’s technology can be applied to in-store and at-home/mobile customization, as well as portable devices and wearables. Being able to deliver this type of experience would be critical for capturing generation Z, which is highly diverse, averse to ads and under the sway of micro influencers. These consumers seek control and want a say in the products they consume.”
“[Guive Balooch, L’Oréal’s Global Vice President of L’Oréal’s Technology Incubator] began by talking about the ways that technology, whether on a smart phone, via an app or a new scientific technology, creates new connections and experiences between consumers and products. He touched on three “pillars of beauty technology” that he and his team are focused on at L’Oréal: personalization, coaching and virtual try-ons.
- Personalization: Brands need to create custom products for consumers’ needs.
- Coaching: Brands need to explore the use of smart tools, sensors and data to adapt to consumer needs.
- Virtual try-ons: Brands need to utilize consumers’ smartphones and devices for quick, easy, try-on in the palm of their hands.”
